Melody's Profile

About

I am a mother of 2 girls, 17 and 14, and one boy, 5 years. I absolutely love to sew and have made many, many special occasion, pageant and holiday dresses and various other items throughout the years. I enjoy most any kind of craft but sewing is my favorite way to express my creativity, probably because I have been doing it so long that is comes as second nature to me! My first sewing project was completed when I was only 6 years old though the desire to sew even more didn't kick in until after I had my first child. Since learning I was pregnant with my now teenage daughter, my sewing machine has barely had a chance to rest, lol.

Simplie Girlie Designs began as a venture between a close friend and myself several years ago. She had an embroidery shop and wanted to offer some cute and trendy girl's dresses she could embroider on. She knew what she wanted and also knew that I could sew, so she came to me…

Simplie Girlie Designs began as a venture between a close friend and myself several years ago. She had an embroidery shop and wanted to offer some cute and trendy girl's dresses she could embroider on. She knew what she wanted and also knew that I could sew, so she came to me with the idea of my making some dresses and selling them in her shop on a consignment basis. At the time, the focus was on girl's wear and Simplie Girlie just seemed a good, cute name so I went with it. I signed up for an account on Etsy using this name so that when I was ready to put my things up here for the world to see I would be ready to go, so the name stuck. :) I now do so much more and, with the addition of my son to the family, I began to produce boys things as well. A few years ago, we moved and I acquired my own embroidery machine. I do much more embroidery now than anything, but I still love to sew.

Everything in my shop can be custom made to your specifications. I never charge an extra fee for this service. I may ask for a 50% deposit if an order requires me to purchase a large amount of materials, but this is only in certain circumstances.

Be sure to check out my shop policies for information including shipping and return policies. I am always working on new ideas for my store that I list as I have time in between filling orders and working so check back often!

I love to work with fabric. There really isn't much you can't do with fabric and a sewing machine! With a little imagination and a few select tools, you can create any number of things. That said, I also love to create jewelry designs, paint, decoupage and scrapbook. I love taking simple things and making them into something special with my own two hands, it is probably one of the most rewarding things in the world to me.

What I love even more is knowing that my creations are being used and loved by others. I do everything in my power to ensure that you receive a top quality product and great customer service.
